Beer 'n' Blues Weekend feat Jo Harman and Company

12 July / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

We open the weekend with a soul fuelled musical journey with Jo Harman and Company

A cocktail of soul, blues, gospel and rootsy rock, nodding to diverse influences from classic Memphis singers to mid period Rolling Stones - delivered by a riveting performer with an exceptional blues-fuelled voice. Jo Harman and Company take the audience on a soul fuelled musical journey covering Jo's strong originals mixed in with some bluesy, styled interpretations of classic Memphis songs and more. Harman fronts this first class band of impressively CV'd musicians, who have already caused a very real stir in the industry with their live performances and BBC sessions.

Their material slips effortlessly between soul, blues, gospel and rootsy rock nodding to diverse influences from classic Memphis singers to mid period Rolling Stones. A riveting performer with an exceptional blues fuelled voice, Harman and her Company continue to sell out where ever they perform so book early to avoid disappointment.

Jo brings with her a world class band who have worked with the likes of Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, Beyonce, BB King, Bowie and more. This will be a night of quality music from one the brightest young vocal talents around, attracting considerable attention and critical acclaim. Not to be missed!

Beer 'n' Blues Weekend feat Kyla Brox

13 July / 13:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

The Saturday afternoon session features Kyla Brox.

Kyla’s voice is a stunning example of the soul singer’s art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. Kyla Brox is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.

Kyla’s first performance at Band on the Wall was in 1992, singing with Victor onstage at Band On The Wall at the age of 12! And we’re thrilled to welcome her back.

Beer 'n' Blues Weekend feat Chantel McGregor

13 July / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

We close the weekend with one of the most of exciting rock/blues guitarist the UK has ever produced, Chantel McGregor.

Imagine the tone of Robin Trower, the feel of Bonnie Raitt, the inspiration ofHendrix, the influence of SRV, the energy of Bonamassa and the intensity of Walter Trout all rolled into one - ladies and gentlemen, introducing the formidable guitar talent that is Chantel McGregor.

Chantel McGregor first picked up a guitar when she was three and at the age of eight became the youngest person to pass a Rockschool grade. Later, she graduated with first class honours from Leeds College of Music, embarking on her career as guitarist and singer and winning the British Young Artist in the British Blues Awards 2011, British Female Artist in 2012 and in 2013 getting the awards for both Female Artist and British Blues Guitarist.

This is bone-crunchingly brilliant blues at its very best.

Just announced: Myron & E, 8th July.

Myron & E

08 July / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

The vocal duo is something of a rarity. There have been countless solo stars, trios, quartets and quintets, but the pairing of equally talented singers isn’t nearly as common. Sam and Dave, Ashford and Simpson, the Righteous Brothers and the Everly Brothers comprise a short list of standouts. Enter Myron & E.

Retro-soul vocal duo Myron & E are Myron Glasper and Eric Cooke. South Central Los Angeles native Glasper has been active since the early '90s, when he danced in episodes of In Living Color and worked as a background vocalist during sessions for MC Lyte and CeCe Peniston. Cooke, from Newark, New Jersey, came up as a DJ and producer. The two crossed paths while touring with Blackalicious but didn't form their duo until Cooke asked Glasper to help him write and sing over instrumentals recorded by Finnish retro-soul band the Soul Investigators. As Myron & E, they debuted on the Soul Investigators’ Timmion label in 2008 with single “Old Game”. After a number of 7”s, Myron & E, still backed by the Soul Investigators, released an album, Broadway, last year on Stones Throw.

Since then, Myron & E have been focused on building their live performance, which includes sold-out shows and a stellar showing at SXSW.

This duo are not to be missed and are probably the closest you will get to “classic soul” these days.

Just announced: Jungle Brothers, 29th September.

Jungle Brothers

29 September / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

One of the best Hip Hop groups of all time, the original Native Tongue Head honchos, The Jungle Brothers return with a career-spanning live set.

The Jungle Brothers - Mike Gee, Afrika Baby Bam, and DJ Sammy B - have been around since Hip Hop’s golden age. They took the 80s and 90s by storm and pioneered the fusion of hip hop, jazz, rare groove and house music and they continue to adapt creatively to the changing soundscapes of both Hip Hop and DJ culture. 

They first appeared on the NYC Hip Hop scene with the release of the groundbreaking “Straight Out The Jungle” in 1988 and they enlisted a group of friends that were on the same creative wavelength: De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Monie Love and Queen Latifah. The result was the loose, but influential collective known as the Native Tongues The Native Tongues crew core are legendary in Hip Hop’s music’s expansion of conscious lyricism and exploration deep into genres like jazz and rare groove in eclectic arrangements and was instrumental in influencing later artists like the Roots, Arrested Development, Pharcyde, Madlip, Common, Kanye West and others. 

If you love Hip Hop, Hip House and Drum and Bass then you will love the Jungle Brothers!

Jaimeo Brown

07 July / 19:30 / More Info / Buy Tickets

The word on the street is out on drummer Jaimeo Brown, whose debut album, Transcendence, has created a massive stir. Connecting 21st century jazz attitude with a profound sense of history, where fractured blues and rock meets forthright improv and the sampled sounds of spirituals from the deep south.

It’s Brown’s alchemic mix of the primitive and the modern that’s woven something new and beguiling’ Jazzwise

Unusually for a composer/ bandleader, Brown is a drummer; he leads this trio - including saxophonist John Allen on saxophone and guitarist/ producer Chris Sholar - from behind the kit.

'To catch them now is to see a piece of history – twenty years from now, jazz fans will be bragging that they saw this show.’ Lucid Culture
